Abstract

INTRODUCTION All 50 state constitutions mandate a statewide system of public education, charging state governments with providing a “thorough and efficient system of free public schools” (or similar language). State legislatures fulfill this obligation by establishing compulsory schooling laws, curriculum standards, and institutions governing the formation and operation of school districts. Despite their constitutional mandate, states historically played only a minor role in the financing of public schools, leaving the funding and dayto-day management of schools in the hands of local governments.
